Decompile / recompile at runtime makes no sense. I was suggesting
adding a directory of color classes to the edj file format that gets
created by edje_cc when compiling (similar to the font dir, spectra
dir, etc). If there are OLD edj files that were created before this was
added to edje they would need to be recompiled (once, then released
again) or they wouldn't work. Simple as that.
